Vespasian RIC II 0002
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. Rome Mint 21 Dec. 69 to early 70 A.D. (3.07g, 18.5m, 6h). Obv: IMP [CAES]ɅR VESPɅSIɅNVS ɅVG, laureate head r. Rev: IVDɅEɅ in exergue, Judaea seated r., head resting on hand, in attitude of mourning, to r. of trophy. RIC II 02, RSC 266, BMC 35. Ex CNG.

Perhaps the iconic type of the reign of Vespasian, this commemorates the Flavian victory in the First Jewish Revolt culminating in the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

Despite some wear on the obverse, this example is well centered, and the reverse retains its detail.
